Blue Origin makes a "historic rocket landing"

The fairly secret Blue Origin company started by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos released a video of their rocket launching and then landing vertically. Landing vertically is certainly a cool accomplishment but the grumpy bear in me can't help but be bothered by the overproduction in the video and how much of it is a CGI representation of  how it will work in the future.

The engineer in me really wanted to see the whole fight as it really happened and not a mashup of flight video and speculative fiction.

Anyway here's the video. Judge for yourself.

Grumpy bear out.
